Schooooooool’s out for summer! Or something like that I think the song goes? Anyways! Hope you’re ready to get out and explore the beautiful city and take some friends with you! Here’s 6 amazing June events in San Diego you need to put on your calendar now!
One of the city’s most popular annual events is the Taste of Little Italy where you can sample foods from tons of local restaurants all in one day. This year’s event will take place on June 22nd and 23rd to try and disperse the usual crowds of the day. For $50 per person, you will get a small plate from 13 different spots in the neighborhood.
Last year, my husband and I only bought one ticket and there was PLENTY of food to split. Some of the participating restaurants are Bobboi Gelato, Craft & Commerce, Nolita Hall, Pali Wine Company, and so many more! Browse the menus online and see which foods you are most interested in, or go to both!
At last, it’s back! Dare I say the best June event in San Diego?? This year’s San Diego County Fair theme is “Home Grown Fun” and will take place June 11th – July 4th (closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). To avoid overcrowding, tickets are sold per day and chosen with a specific entry time.
Admission is $10 per person and children under 5 are free. Parking is an additional $12. Enjoy your favorite fair activities like the Ferris wheel, funnel cakes, and classic pig races. Fair hack: If you book a public transportation ticket for $12, you will get a round-trip fare on the train and bus AND admission to the fair.
